The Hickman marks 130-year anniversary
The Hickman Friends Senior Community of West Chester celebrated its 130year anniversary on Thursday with cupcakes, refreshments and music.
The founding mission of The Hickman has always been its commitment to ensure that seniors in the community who need a supportive living environment will always have one right here in West Chester.
Throughout our history, we have adapted, grown and faced challenges with foresight and confidence. As we cautiously emerge from the pandemic, we are focused on the emotional well-being of our residents through family interaction, resumption of group activities and the comfort of The Hickman community.
We are grateful partners of the Quaker Block in partnership with the West Chester Friends Meeting and West Chester Friends School, which, along with our longstanding relationship with the West Chester community, has enhanced the lives of our residents. The leadership team is extremely optimistic for the future of all things Hickman!
The Hickman Friends Senior Community of West Chester, founded by Lydia
Hall and Sallie Sharpless in 1891, provides comfortable and caring accommodations for seniors in West Chester. Led by Quaker traditions and principles, the Hickman is based on a rental model, which enables seniors to easily choose a safe and thriving personal care community as their home without onerous upfront costs.
